1968, Cars: Renault 6

French car maker Renault introduced their new 6 at the 1968 Paris Motor Show. The car was intended to compete with the Citroën Ami 6 and the Citroën Dyane. The Renault 6 used the R4 platform as well as its 845 cc engine. The car was technically almost identical to the Renault 4, but visually it had the looks of the Renault 16.

In 1970 the car was updated with the more powerful 1.1 litre engine from the Renault 8, higher equipment, a new gearbox and cooling system, and front disc brakes.
